This is a blog about many things – primarily, my weight loss journey.
After being admitted to Hospital in July 2010 (for a condition unrelated to my weight), I was shocked to discover that I weighed 243 kilograms. At this point, I made the decision to have Lap-Band surgery – something I’d been thinking about doing for some time but had been putting off.
Please share the highs and lows with me as I go on this journey to strive to find a healthier and happier me.

Hmmm... what next?
Just a quick one tonight to let everyone know that I pulled up well today.
I am not sore anywhere.The only thing that aches a bit is my arm from where I would have pulled myself up the stairs.Other than that, everything is fine.Legs are good, asthma has totally gone, ankles and knees are fine – I have felt worse after some PT sessions than what I have today!I am quick amazed.
I’ll go to the gym tomorrow and have a run and might do some swimming just to get all the muscles working again.
I’ve felt a bit ‘meh’ today.This week has been an emotional roller coaster.I had a sleep this afternoon and felt a lot better for it.I am about to go back to bed in a minute.
I have been thinking about my next challenge.I need a short term one to work toward for the immediate future and also a few long term ones to train for. I am going to start doing the stairs more at work now. I'll work them into part of my fitness routine. I might do them once a fortnight or so (no, not the whole thing - just 30 flights or so).
I've had a few ideas on what to do...
The Eureka tower one sounds great but very busy!It’s 88 floors.
I am already signed up to do the Relay for Life on the 5th and the 6th of November.I am a member of my Sister’s group.Here is the link to my ‘sponsor me’ page and more information about Relay for Life…
I’d love to have a go of the Oxfam 100km walk.This was first suggested to me by someone on my blog (I think – sorry, I have a terrible memory at the moment!).It sounds very challenging and something that I’d love to do…
I also want to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge.One of my friends, Tracey did this around about a month ago.I’d love to do it with her :) I’d love to do this as a celebration of how far we’ve come.And Trace is nearly at goal as well.I have a little way to go yet but it would be fantastic to do this together and do a victory dance at the top (holding onto the rail, of course).This would be a challenge for me because I hate heights!
